Our guest this episode is Scott Onuczko, Communication Technology teacher at Spruce Grove Composite High School in Alberta. Scott uses both traditional tools and the latest technology to help students explore their creative sides, enhance their design and production skills, explore interests outside the curriculum and change the world … one personally designed and silkscreened t-shirt at a time.
Breaking away from the traditional teacher model, Scott has designed his classes around his students’ passions, areas of ability and learning needs. He recognizes that in the rapidly changing field of communication technology, he cannot always be the expert in the room, he acts as a guide for students as they solve problems and help each other. He won a Prime Minister’s Award for Teaching Excellence in 2016.
